Holly in the winning Chicco high chair

WHEN it comes to giveaways, I’m far from a lucky person. Unless you include winning a $1000 prepaid VISA card – twice, scoring a $12,000 scholarship fund for Ella and getting a $350 Chicco high chair. Although, I did have to pay for its freight to Tasmania. So that got devalued pretty quickly.

However, my usual lack of luck doesn’t stop me entering. At one time I did really well entering every competition requiring 25 words or less by changing the words to These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things. It worked. For a while. That’s how I got the VISA cards and high chair. Then contest organisers obviously cottoned on to my little plan and all of a sudden the winnings went dry.

So when I discovered blogging and all the giveaways that DIDN’T require me to be clever (oh, what joy for a sleep-deprived, brain-fried, caffeine-wired mama), I got more than a little excited.

However, that’s nothing in comparison to the moment the wonderful Tina Gray from www.tinagray.me emailed to see if I’d be keen to co-host the Aussie Giveaway Linkup with her. Yes, please! All those giveaways on my site? What joy! What? Oh, right, it’s just links. I don’t actually get to have all the prizes. Bummer!

So here we are, giveaways in hand, ready to spread the free(bie) love.

As a reader, all you have to do is click the links that entice you and enter the giveaways. And, of course, you can enter as many as you want. Or all of them.

If you’re a blogger wanting to take part in the Aussie Giveaway Linkup:

  1. Only link directly to the giveaway post/s and include the prize and end date in the linky tool below. Link each giveaway separately.
  2. Giveaways must be open to Australian residents. 
  3. Grab the button to add to your post.
  4. A new list is added each Sunday so bloggers need to add their links weekly. 
  5. Start entering the giveaways!

Next Sunday, make sure you pop on over to Tina Gray {dot} me to check out the latest batch of giveaways. PS. Feel free to vote in our poll over there in the sidebar. We’d love to hear what you think.

  1. Oh Kel they are amazing to win! A scholarship fund for Ella! That would have blown me away! 2 $1000! cards!! WOW!! I think you are lucky for sure!!

  2. Caz says:

    Looks to me like you are VERY lucky with competitions. Go you!!! Hope the linky works fabulously for you Kellie.

  3. Caz says:

    Hey Kellie – I can’t get the linky button to work. Might well be an issue from my end (you are becoming familiar with my less than impressive tecky skills) but thought I’d let you know just in case.

    • Kel says:

      Hmm, no think it’s my end, Caz. Just realised I hadn’t put the button on my own posts and it isn’t showing. I’m on the road today, but will see if I can get it fixed this arvo. Don’t worry about the button for today and maybe just use a link back instead! Thanks for the heads up, Caz! 🙂

    • Hey Caz, another way to get around it is to right click and save the button and then just add it to your giveaway post, as you would any other image and just link it back to Three Lil Princesses.

  5. […] ~Tina on June 5, 2011 Run, don’t walk, over to Three Lil Princesses who is hosting the very first Aussie Giveaway link […]

  6. Kel says:

    Hi all, as per the reply on Caz’s comment, if the button isn’t working on your posts, don’t stress! If you could just include a link back instead, that would be much appreciated!
    Cheers, kel 🙂

  7. Norlin says:

    This is such a FABULOUS idea! I’ve linked up and will tweet and share on my fb page!! 🙂

  8. river says:

    2 x $1000 cards and a $12,000 scholarship fund hardly counts as a lack of luck.

    I’ve been entering competitions for 20 years, so far I’ve won a plastic beach cushion with matching straw&plastic thongs. That’s it.

    • Kel says:

      After I wrote it, I realised how lucky I actually am! I think, because I’d been entering comps for so long and these prizes happened in such a short space of time, I considered myself unlucky. But you’re right River, I really should be rather grateful! Hope Lady Luck shines on you through some of these giveaways! 🙂

  9. Hey Kel, I got the badge working had a play with the html code for your badge, sent you a email with the code if you want it 🙂

  10. Is great way to wine prizes using the song from Sound of Music, what a easy to remember theme – mm, might try that one myself sometime…

    As for winning stuff, sheesh, it is a long time between drinks for me too. But will be following this linky idea.

    • Kel says:

      Let me know if you have luck with it, Brendan. I might have to start pulling it out again myself!! hehe!
      Hoping you score something out of these giveaways, Brendan. There’s some pretty cool prizes here! 🙂

  11. Alicia says:

    great idea. Thanks for organising it ladies!

  12. Naomi Ellis says:

    awesome idea – love being able to come to one place to enter giveaways.
    you are one lucky woman Kellie. N x

  13. Marita says:

    What a fantastic idea – congrats to you both 🙂

  14. Tat says:

    Sorry, Kel, I haven’t been able to get your button to work in my post, I’ll try again later! Thanks for hosting.

  15. Wonderful idea ladies! Makes finding everything so much easier. 🙂

    • Kel says:

      Yes, doesn’t it! A great way for bloggers to get a few more entries and even better for readers who are a bit time poor to be able to enter. 🙂

  16. […] I am also adding this to the Aussie Giveaway Link-up over at Three ‘Lil Princesses […]

  17. Elisha says:

    Hey kel, None of the links are working for me – Keep getting “Internet explorer can not display the webpage” Is it my end?

    • Kel says:

      Hey Elisha, Just checked them all and they’re working my end. Did you want to try again and see how you go? Otherwise, it looks like it might be something on your end. Unless the site was down earlier this morning, which is highly possible. 🙂

  18. […] I may actually do cartwheels! Please please please pick me! PS I found you via the giveaway linkup http://threelilprincesses.com/2011/06/win-the-inaugural-aussie-giveaway-linkup/, which I found via http://tinagray.me/. Karen Leschnik recently posted..Someones Turning 40and you […]
